Gallery | Dan Marshall Watercolor Landscapes

When Dan Marshall began working with watercolors he was immediately taken by the sensitivity of the medium and the atmospheric effects he could achieve in his watercolor landscapes. They feature a broad panning sweep; the compositional staging is highly stylized, abstract and near-cinematic—calling to mind long opening shots in movies that are meant to imply a narrative or set an emotional tone. He achieves this potent quality by manipulating scale and composition.

Marshall, an award-winning watercolor and tattoo artist featured in the August 2016 issue of Watercolor Artist (now available in print here, as a download here and on newsstands June 14), recently moved to Denver, where he opened Atelier 71, a studio gallery and tattoo space. Enjoy this bonus gallery of the artist’s watercolor landscapes that didn’t make it into the printed issue.

Dan Marshall’s Toolkit for Watercolor Landscapes

Watercolors: Winsor & Newton, Holbein and Daniel Smith
Brushes: Escoda and Isabey
Paper: St Cuthberts Mill Saunders Waterford 140-lb. and 226-lb. rough. “The softness of the surface compared to other brands allows for a mixing of paint directly on the surface of the paper that has no equal,” Marshall says.
Misc.: Holbein folding palette and a plein air watercolor painting box that Marshall built based on a design by Joseph Zbukvic; it fits in the overhead bin on any airplane, so he doesn’t need to check it.
